Best place to go with excellent front desk staff.

Jewls K (San Diego, California) on Dec 01, 2022

Great employee's when I arrive they were friendly and made you feel like your home. Cle rooms pool is outstanding food good size portions could have more variety. Best Pina coladas. Parking is not free that is a bummer it adds up when your staying a week. Pet friendly had a great time front desk manager and staff were the best.

Beautiful Pool area

Samantha B (Terre Haute, Indiana) on Sep 07, 2022

My mother and I stayed here for one night while I was in San Diego. The hotel was very outdated. They did not have elevators available and the rooms were really spread out. Since we took an Uber to the hotel, we had to walk a long way to our room which was hard on my elderly mother. They did not provided any continental Breakfast or coffee or water at the lobby. Beyond those issues, the pool area was just like the picture. It was clean and beautiful. I enjoyed the pool and the jacuzzi and sat in their shaded lounge chair reading for hours. Overall, I would only come back for the pool area.

needs major clean up and security upgrade

Robstravel145 on Sep 01, 2022

clean room, some peeling wallpaper, exterior surfaces are dirty, not as well maintained as in the past, needs complete re painting just for starters. Security issues: items were stolen from outside veranda, caught on video, no action taken nor any attempt to apologize or compensate. took multiple calls to front desk to halt an all night party across the hall.

Handlery Hotel handled us perfectly !

MartinUSDK (Europe) on Aug 31, 2022

Stayed 4 nights here at the handlery. We asked for a price at front desk upon arrival, and they suggested to book it online because the price would be much lower. Good service ! They give out free pancakes for kids at breakfast with purchase of 1 adult breakfast. Parking is 10$ a night but most hotels charge for that in SD. The pool area is large, clean and well kept. The hallways are a bit dated and dark, but rooms fulfilled our needs, the beds are comfy, clean and the room quiet. The hotel it self is placed close to downtown, beach and shopping centers. We would stay here again for sure. Thanks from Family Nielsen.
